What if one of the most effective tools you have to restore your health is not surgery or medications, but your own hands? Incredibly, your hands can heal you -- with the "energy medicine" of Pranic Healing. A powerful system that is rapidly increasing in popularity, Pranic Healing works with your own natural, vital energy -- which is also called prana -- to accelerate your body's innate self-healing ability.
Amazingly easy to learn and apply, Pranic Healing uses a series of powerful but simple methods to generate energy, including non-touch hand movements; energetic hygiene, the practice of keeping your personal energy tank clean and full; breathing; and brief meditations. Using these unique techniques, you can identify, clear, and purify unhealthy, imbalanced energy and replace it with fresh energy that helps your body heal itself from a wide range of physical, psychological, and emotional symptoms and disorders. A self-healing guide for 24 ailments, including physical and sports injuries, chronic arthritis, irritable bowel syndrome, insomnia, hypertension, headaches, backaches, congestion and colds, menstrual cramps, even depression and stress-related disorders, is included.
With step-by-step instructions, line drawings, and numerous real-life medical stories, Your Hands Can Heal You demonstrates and explains a revolutionary program that anyone can use to harness the energy of body, mind, and breath to produce health and facilitate repair. Personally trained by Grand Master Choa Kok Sui, who developed Pranic Healing, the authors, Master Co and Dr. Robins, provide the same detailed guidance in Your Hands Can Heal You as in the popular Pranic Healing workshops.
Additionally, they present, for the first time in any book, the Grandmaster's special modifications to the breathing practices that can dramatically increase your power and energy and rejuvenate and balance your physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual body.
This exciting new mind-body heath reference proves that you can heal yourself -- with your own two hands.
A form of touch-based "energy medicine," pranic healing is based on the belief that stimulating the "universal life force" helps bodies heal themselves. Practitioners use a series of hand "sweeps" and finger gestures that manipulate the body's own energy source, or prana, in order to accelerate its natural healing abilities for a number of persistent health problems, including PMS, insomnia and hypertension. Co-written by Co, a Master Pranic Healer, and Robins, a surgeon and pranic healing instructor, the book is grounded by Robin's scientific background and Co's initial skepticism. Based on two practices that the authors claim are largely unique to their method-employing colored pranas (to heal menstrual cramps, "project light whitish-green and light whitish-orange prana into the sex chakra") and focusing on "energetic hygiene"-the text offers a six-step program for achieving self-healing. Pranic breathing, meditation and exercises to increase energy are three such steps, and the authors explain all in efficient and surprisingly matter-of-fact chapters that resemble a textbook's: there are practice exercises that close each chapter, detailed line drawings that illustrate what pranic breathing "looks like" and the hand and finger positioning for basic sweeping techniques, technique and methodology checklists and tables, and numerous medical narratives that make for good study breaks. While the scientific credibility of this non-touch healing technique will continue to be debated, Co and Robin appear to have just the right touch for crafting a no-assembly-required, ready to use guide, to be used, they note, as a complement to more traditional medicine.
